About Adenike AmenRa

I am Adenike Amen-Ra. I am an Indigo Tutsi Afrikan and Natchez American. Art is a healing expression, meditation, and prayer. Art is also revolutionary activism. I create art in improvisation, using found and borrowed elements. My art is a sacred prayer and propitiation to elemental powers and talismans for protection. I use spoken words, symbols and natural energy to express the inner-verse of mind, body, and spirit. 

I was inspired by my Studies in Anthropology, (which, at the time, was the only way that I could learn about African Art.) I studied the lost wax Bronzecasting process, Painting, Visual Communications, and I also learned that there was a world of difference between the ego expressions of Western European art(s) and the functional, spiritual, environmental connectedness of African Art. I later studied in a local ASCAC Study Group (Association for the Study of Classical African Civilizations,) reading the likes of John G.M. James, Gerald Massey, Albert Churchward, and my all-time favorite, Cheikh Anta Diop, and learned that Our Ancient Afrikan Descendents always paid humble propitiation to the elemental powers of nature for ANYTHING that they needed. I also learned that waste was a cardinal sin in most traditional African communities. So the aspect of recycling, repurposing, reusing items was not only an intentional and practical endeavor but is a vital necessity within the environment that I lived in. I became an environmentalist and studied and became an East Afrikan KaMaTa (Kemetic), Priestess. My focus is in Youth and Family Development. I create Educational Materials that reflect the African Diaspora. Mandela Sip and Create events, Vision boards and Teaching Artist to Activism, Sustainable environmentalism, and environmental design.

I have enjoyed being a Queen mom of many Grand Princesses and Princes, living in the urban Kansas City Area. I am always looking for solutions to the cycles of violence, health disparities, poverty, and inequalities in wealth, that has been placed against Indigo Children of Afrikan Descent. I left the Public School system in Kansas City, Missouri as an Exceptional Ed. Teacher, with the goal of changing the nutritional disadvantages within the neighborhood that I worked in, as an Urban Grower/Farmer. I was one of the few teachers who lived where I worked. My home was 4 blocks down the street, from Central High School. It was the same house that the parents of my former husband, broke the real estate redline barrier, back in the 1960s. To recall that people of African Descent could not live in these segregated regions in Kansas City, and now to experience the paradox of reverse segregation, where people of African descent would be denied home improvement loans, business loans, and insurance products, that would enhance their homes, and neighborhoods, while the war of drug was dumped upon our neighborhoods. The majority of student populations in the urban environment is African American, while the teachers are predominantly Caucasians, who maintain a middle-class value system. Now our communities are ripe for the picking for regentrification, of housing.

I acquired the vacant lot next door, to my home and open the Amen Par Ankh, a Natural Life Center, and Amen Ankh Urban Farm. This was a green space for Urban Agriculture nesting around Youth initiatives, Home Scholar educational materials, and Green STEAM (Science Technology, Engineering, Industrial Arts, and Mathematics) activities. I am a blogger, hoping to publish my books and become a respected public speaker and Internet virtual educator. I have conducted several workshops at various organizations, served as a panelist and as keynote speaker at regional meetings.

Adenike is a Yoruba, Nigerian, which means: (The Crown is Precious)   AmenRa means (The hidden one who manifests enlightenment)
My spiritual Destiny name is Nuta Beqsu, which means (heaven gives me balance) Nu, Nut, and Ta are Elemental powers of the Heavens: Nu is Atmosphere, Moisture, and Water, Nut is the Sky-goddess Ta represents the Sacred space. My name represents the cosmos and the universe. The Universe is always giving birth to new solar systems and stars. Ta is the original word for place, land, home, domain, and/or existence. We are all a part of and belong to, the Universe. Our land is our home, and the place for the empirical existence that we are experiencing. Nuta Beqsu seeks to live in balance and harmony between the planetary and heavenly existence. We are all connected to the land, trees, microcosm and macrocosm, Inner verse, Yoni-verse, and universe. A name is an affirmation that will be programmed into conscious spirit, to produce thought sequences to direct a course of action, as a way to achieve success in life. Visualization is thought converted into a pleasurable visual image(s) to achieve a goal and/or purpose. We connect with Divine Power to guide and direct our pathways. As a divine name is spoken the receiver has unity of direction in life. A name reflects the Destiny. So, the sight Sound, vision, smells, and colors associated with a divine name will give guidance in one's pathway.
